The UFL is struggling and has postponed the second half of its season until the spring.

The United Football League teams are in Omaha, Nebraska; Sacramento, California; Las Vegas, Nevada and Norfolk, Virginia.

The league plans on returning to a fall schedule in 2013.

As of this past week, coaches and players have not been paid. Players earn $3,500 a game.

The UFL said that its priority is to pay coaches, players and support staff. The league did not have enough money to cover workmen’s compensation insurance and other bills.

League founder and chairman William Hambrecht said that each team has played four of the eight regularly-scheduled games. The remaining games and the championship game will be played in the spring.

The league was founded in 2007 and its inaugural season was 2009.

Troy Smith signs with Steelers

Former Ohio State quarterback Troy Smith, a 2006 Heisman Trophy winner, has been signed to a reserve/futures contract by the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Smith spent three seasons with the Baltimore Ravens from 2007-2009, beating the Steelers as a rookie starter in 2007.

Smith spent 2010 with the San Francisco 49ers.

Smith won the 2006 Heisman Memorial Trophy on December 9, 2006. He beat out sophomore RB Darren McFadden (2nd) from Arkansas and senior QB Brady Quinn (3rd), from Notre Dame.

In winning the 2006 Heisman, Smith took 86.7% of the first place votes, a record that has not been broken. His tally of 2,540 votes was the third largest behind that of the then-2005 Heisman Trophy winner, Reggie Bush of the USC (2,541 votes) and 1968 Heisman winner O. J. Simpson who also played for USC (2,853 votes). His margin of victory (1,662 votes) was also the second largest in the history of the award, eclipsed only by O.J. Simpson who won by 1,750 votes.

Troy Smith joined Les Horvath (1944), Vic Janowicz (1950), Howard “Hopalong” Cassady (1955), Archie Griffin (1974 and 1975) and Eddie George (1995) as Ohio State Heisman winners.

Smith was signed by the Omaha Nighthawks of the United Football League on September 2, 2011. An injury to fellow Heisman Trophy-winner Eric Crouch in the season opener, opened the door for Smith to become the starter, though the Nighthawks decided to go with Jeremiah Masoli who had been with the team longer.

Smith’s first UFL start came in Omaha’s final game of the season, a 25-19 loss to the Mountain Lions of Sacramento in the consolation round of the postseason. In the game, Smith completed 17-of-33 passes for 191 yards, two touchdowns and one interception, including a 81-yard touchdown pass to Chad Lucas.

Ahman Green has decided to retire from the NFL as a Green Bay Packers player.

Green, the franchise’s all-time leading rusher, made his retirement announcement official at Lambeau Field on Thursday night.

Green will not be away from the game completely.

The 34-year-old native of Omaha, Nebraska and Nebraska Cornhuskers star will be a sideline analyst for the Big Ten network this season. He also will be doing some volunteer high school coaching this fall in the Green Bay, Wisconsin area.

Green played last season in the United Football League for his hometown Omaha Nighthawks.

With the National Football League trying to end its lockout and get training camps and preseason games underway, the United Football League has announced that it will be pushing back the start of its season from August to September.

The schedule switch does not help the UFL which has lost more than $100 million in the first two years of its existence.

The UFL has teams in Omaha, Hartford, Norfolk, Las Vegas and Sacramento.

The league had hoped to gain viewers and fans during the NFL lockout, by scheduling early-season games on Sundays.
